Abstract
In this paper the optimization of a continuously diode-pumped Nd:GdVO4 laser oscillator in bounce geometry passively mode-locked using semiconductor saturable absorber mirror is presented. In the previous results the Nd:GdVO4 laser system generating 30 ps pulses with the average output power of 6.9 W at the repetition rate of 200 MHz at the wavelength of 1063 nm was reported. Now we are demonstrating up to three times increase of peak power due to the optimization of mode-matching in the laser resonator. Depending on the oscillator configuration we obtained the stable continuously mode-locked operation with pulses having selectable duration from 15 ps to 70 ps with the average output power of 7 W and the repetition rate of 150 MHz.
